What a beautiful house you have here! Everything is perfect and we are so pleased to be here.....

from the same guest as they were leaving:

As we prepare to leave tomorrow I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful time we have had in Surprise. Everyone's expectations have been met - from the baseball games to the Museums, it has been just perfect. Your house was everything that we had hoped for and more.

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for the use of your wonderful home in Surprise AZ.
We have rented many homes over the years for our trips and I have to say that yours is one of the best. Very clean, well maintained, updated and in a great location.

We have never been in Arizona in July and it was so nice to walk into your home and have it cooled down and ready to go.

The pool was such an amazing thing to have at our disposal. Your pool was not only clean and well maintained it cooled us down every night after being out in the heat.

If we are ever back in the area I would love to rent your home again and again.

I would recommend your home to everyone who wants to brave the desert heat.

Great AZ house and location

Review submitted: March 29, 2013   Date of arrival: February 15, 2013

A great place to spend a month and enjoy the AZ sunshine. House was more than we expected. Close to shopping and ball park. Golfing also close by. Comfortable furnishings. House very organized. Pool and patio very nice although water was to cold at this time of year. Quiet neighborhood. Owners very cooperative. Will put on my list again.

Owners response: We're working on heating the pool......

Your home awaay from home

Review submitted: June 27, 2012   Date of arrival: June 10, 2012

I’ve leased vacation homes, condos, etc. previously but none was as comfortable as yours. You provide all the comforts of home as they say. I had people visit me during my stay and to a person they all said how nice and comfortable your home is. That means a lot. Your home is well-stocked with so many things that normally you would have to purchase during the stay. Things like beach towels, laundry supplies, coffee K-cups, other kitchen staples, games and so on… Your wireless network is great as is the ePrinter. The pool and patio area were fantastic. It was such a pleasant experience on my next visit to the area your home will be at the top of my list. As owners you are five star!

It was more than what we expected!! Nicely decorated, very clean, heavenly to sit on the patio and have coffee by the pool. Every thing in the house was very organized. Owners nice to deal with by e- mail or phone

All the comforts of home!

Review submitted: March 18, 2012   Date of arrival: March 2, 2012

Review from guest email....

We rented this beautiful home for a week in March, just in time for Spring Training. Three of the Parks we went to were a 20 to 30 minute drive so we were well located for baseball fans! The home was spacious enough for 3 couples which made the cost more than reasonable. We all felt at home the minute we walked in. The home was appointed so well that we lacked for nothing. From the cushy towels, the fine sheets, to all the necessities of the kitchen, even to laundry detergent and water softener for the washer and dryer. You may notice that I keep referring to "home", for that's how we felt. All the comforts of home! The backyard, patio and pool were lovely, especially the bougainvillea. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again for our stays in sunny Arizona.

Owners note: And of course the Surprise Stadium is even closer - 3 minutes max!

Wow! Wonderful!

Review submitted: September 25, 2011   Date of arrival: June 13, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our four-week stay in this lovely, conveniently located Surprise vacation home. From the moment we walked in the door of this very attractive, welcoming house, we felt comfortable. The home is clean, well-maintained and well-appointed. It has everything necessary and more—an attractive Southwestern décor, wireless access for your computer, computer and printer for guest use, phone service (both local and national long-distance), HD TVs, dvd, very comfortable beds (with beautiful custom quilts!), and a fully-equipped kitchen, including a wonderful coffee maker and a waffle maker. The pool was great fun and we enjoyed the outdoor grill and living area.

We particularly appreciated the wealth of information provided by the homeowner—from directions to the local grocery stores, bank, post office to information about the numerous activities and attractions in the area: museums, shops, hiking, historic sites, and more. We were there on July 4 and enjoyed the spectacular Surprise fireworks display from the vantage point of the neighborhood park—a very short walk away.

The neighborhood is very quiet and pleasant and the home’s security system enhanced our feeling of safety. Keyless entry to the house is convenient. The owner has even supplied reading material and dvds.

We highly recommend this home and hope that we get the opportunity to use it again soon.

Well appointed home with many unexpected extras!

Review submitted: September 3, 2011   Date of arrival: August 11, 2011

This vacation home in Surprise is one of the best we've encountered over the years. We needed to find a place at the last minute with dsl/wireless Internet and not only did the owner provide this, but a computer as well with a free guest account. All phone - local AND nationwide long distance - is included in the rate as well as all the utilities. Everything is explained in detail and the instructions for everything are clearly spelled out including how to make waffles in the professional waffle maker and how to make delicious lemonade from the lemons growing on the tree in the backyard. We've never spent time anywhere else where everything was so comfy and soft right down to the throw pillows. It was so nice to have a pool in the backyard too especially during the hottest August on record in Phoenix. All shopping is nearby and if you get a hankerin' for some authentic stuffed Chicago pizza, there's a Rosati's within a 10 minute drive. There are so many channels on the TV, you're bound to find something to watch 24/7. But also, bring a few movie dvd's along on your trip and you can play them right here too. The neighborhood has a quiet family ambience and is close to a park with lots of grassy lawn, fountains, ducks and tennis courts for those times when you would like to just take a stroll around. If you have your mail forwarded while you're here, the post office is less than a 5 minute drive away on Bell Road. Everyone here is super nice and accommodating and the owner especially will do whatever it takes to make your stay completely enjoyable. If we could give this vacation home more than 5 stars we would. You won't be disappointed!

AMAZING home away from home

Review submitted: April 18, 2011   Date of arrival: February 12, 2011

As soon as we walked in, I knew we chose the right rental home!!

Absolutely clean and spotless! The furniture and decorations are so cozy and comfortable...there are even handmade quilts on the beds!

We did not need anything when we arrived, so many amenities!

The backyard and pool were wonderful. Lemon and grapefruit trees are in the backyard!

The neighborhood was very nice and we felt so safe, especially with the top of the line home security system. You are within a very short walking distance to a beautiful park and play structures.

I would highly recommend this amazing home away from home!! I will never stay anywhere else. Thank you Havrilla and Lorene for sharing your home.

We Felt at Home

Review submitted: November 11, 2010   Date of arrival: October 9, 2010

from European guest email....

It´s a wonderful place and i´m telling not to much when I say: “We felt at home”

Everything is clean and good looking. Specially the furniture looks great and the “entertainment” is beautiful. We only used the TV in the Living room but.. what a picture in HD, wow.

So, we want to say thanks again, we appreciate all the things you’ve done in that wonderful house.

We wish to come back in the next year, maybe same time, then for 2 weeks.
